Today in Madonna History: October 2, 1986

On October 2 1986, Madonna’s True Blue music video premiered on BBC1-TV’s Top Of The Pops. The video was directed by James Foley and shot in early September (1986) in New York.

Two of Madonna’s closest friends (at the time), Erika Belle and Debi Mazar, appeared in the video.

A second video for True Blue (which does not include Madonna) was shown on MTV in the USA. The second video was the winner of Madonna’s ‘Make My Video’ Contest. The winners (Angel Gracia and Cliff Guest) were flown to MTV’s New York studio where Madonna presented them a $25,000 check live on MTV.

  1. Title cut to True Blue-A brilliant art song revisited! I love True Blue-as do rock critics John Updike and Dave Marsh who call the song catchy, hooky and brilliant!!! An actual highlight at Rebel Heart in which Madonna raises a toast to flame and Best Friend Sean Penn! Madonna then strips it down to bare essential with an acoustic version with ukelele! Madonna is later touched by the audience reaction of said song-the fans sang it back to her! Touching moment Miss Ciccone!!
